The new Batman movie suggests that Thomas and Martha Wayne were killed in 2001, which means it’s very likely that they died taking their beloved son Bruce to the theater to see Shrek.

In ‘The Batman’ they said that Bruce Wayne’s parents were murdered in October 2001. Which means if you follow the release dates it’s possible they left a Zoolander screening when it happened .

Everyone is wrong about the movie Bruce Wayne saw before his parents were murdered.
In Batman’s opening narration, he says it’s “Thursday, October 31” which places the movie in 2024 and the Waynes’ murder in 2004.

If this new Batman is, like Robert Pattinson, 35 years old and Bruce Wayne was 8 when his parents were killed, it is quite possible that the film that Thomas and Martha Wayne saw just before their death is CITY SLICKERS II: THE LEGEND OF CURLY’S GOLD

According to the rolling timeline of Batman reboots, we should eventually get a movie where Thomas and Martha Wayne were killed off in 2005, which would mean they most likely died after taking Bruce to see Batman Begins.
